Traditional on Lake Superior

Traditional on Lake Superior

Head East from Grand Marais and the world slows down a bit, head east from Hovland and go way back to a quieter, simpler time on the North Shore. Bay Breeze is a home on the shores of Lake Superior, boasting an arcing frontage of 500+ feet! The home is elegance combined with a thoughtful floorplan and single-floor living. Views to the big lake soothe the eye in all the main rooms, and natural light fills and dances on the vaulted ceilings. Family-reunion size deck nestles close to the land for an intimate connection to rock, shore, and water. The master bedroom is spacious with cavernous closet and private bath. Additional bedroom for friends or family. The living room is just so sweet and comfortable with big views to the nor’easters that blow up occasionally. You’ll be snug and cozy in front of the cobblestone fireplace. The dining room fronts the kitchen, both connect well to the Gitche Gumee surroundings. The kitchen can handle whatever you want to throw at it. Perhaps you ran up to Thunder Bay to the Italian market, it’s not far. That’s cool, cook up a mess of pasta and sausages. Don’t feel like cooking? Head over to the Hovland General Store: tasty vittles there! Grand Portage is close and has lots to explore including the old fort and museum. If you like history, go a bit further to Fort William. Grand Marais is not far the other direction. The BWCA and Superior Hiking Trail are a beautiful drive up the Arrowhead. Your off and away here, no one will find you if that’s your pleasure. Though, the fiber optic hums along if you want to connect, or Spotify the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald when the Gales of November come early… This home is all comfort and ease. Wild setting, with a civilized domicile. Current owners have a short term rental following that you can decide to continue. Or not, keep for yourself, friends and family: the getaway, way up North!
